"Pier Time" Plein Air in Monterey Bay, California

"Pier Time," (Monterey, CA) oil, 16"h x 12"w, ©2016 Jill Banks
Yesterday's painting "Pier Time" took advantage of gray but pretty morning weather in Monterey. Eventually the sun baked away the clouds and illuminated what will be subjects for the sunny afternoon today. (Got to go capture that in a moment.)

Tomorrow night's post should show what I was painting this morning. Quite a contrast. I decided NOT to include an orange kayak because I figured that the scene was already almost too colorful to believe.

Check in tomorrow night to see what YOU think.

Off to work while listening to the sounds of water, seals, seagulls ...

Thank you for reading!
